My Free And Easy Exercise Program
After yesterday’s post, so many readers asked what were the 5 exercises I referred to, so here they are:
- 20 crunches
- 15-20 push ups
- 25 waist bends
- 50 leg lifts on each side
- an arm exercise or extra waist bend exercise.
Of course, I would add to or take away from the exercises in this list depending on what was going on at the time. When I am sick, I don’t do as much and when I am better I do more.
I have always had stairs, which I had to use a lot. For example, the other day I made 12 trips up and down my stairs in one hour. So a person who is trying to watch her weight and get healthier might do something like I did for many years. I put my phone upstairs but I spent most of my time working downstairs so, each time the phone rang, I had to make a mad dash up the stairs and sometimes I had to go all the way from the basement to the second story.
I also do other things that integrate exercise into my daily routine. I rarely go through the drive-through window for my errands. Instead, I park and walk in. When I sew, I keep my ironing board away from my sewing machine so I have to get up to press things with the iron.
Like I said, sometimes I do things differently when I am sick but this is my exercise program. Quick and easy!
PS. I watched a famous Dr. yesterday who had some great “new” how to lose weight program. Part of it he showed this cool “new” way to exercise to help you get fit and lose weight. I had to chuckle it was pretty much my regular exercises I just mentioned but just glorified a little. There is nothing really new under the sun and the older I get the more I believe it.
